OKLAHOMA CITY – Firefighters were able to stop a fire from spreading in an Oklahoma City condominium complex.

Shortly before 2 p.m., fire crews were called to a commercial fire alarm in the 3200 block of W. Britton.

Heavy flames and smoke could be seen from miles away as firefighters arrived on the scene of the Nantucket Condominiums.

Strong winds pushed the flames toward other buildings, so fire crews worked to prevent it from spreading further.

At times, it appeared that the entire second story along the east side of the building was engulfed in flames.

As the smokes clears, it is obvious the top story is a total loss.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire was a contractor conducting hot work on the exterior of the building.

The fire appears to be accidental.

All occupants made it out of the condo safely.

Unfortunately, one dog did not survive, fire officials say.

One firefighter received minor injuries.
